Data Sources
Census API source: EM6 API Data?

The EM6 is a light machine gun available to the New Conglomerate. It is unlocked through purchase with Certification Points and Daybreak Cash.

The Esamir Munitions 6 presents an alternative to the NC6 Gauss SAW, one that sacrifices damage-per-shot for a higher rate-of-fire, considerably faster reload speed, and slightly less harsh recoil, plus access to Extended Magazines, although the weapon's overall damage-per-second decreases and performance at range is worsened thanks to an additional tier of damage fall-off.

The EM6 can also be seen as the other side of the same coin as the LA1 Anchor, with which it shares the same damage model. The Anchor places a bit more priority on accuracy and mobility, with an improved fall-off range, excellent minimum hip cone-of-fire values, and a much faster reload. However, the EM6 earns a doubled magazine size, which can be further doubled to a total of 200 rounds, and friendlier recoil values.

Damage Fall-off[edit | edit source]

Stats in purple are with High Velocity Ammunition.

  • 167 before 10 meters (8 meters)
  • 143 at 47 meters (57 meters)
  • 125 after 75 meters (95 meters)
